Belkin's Flywire 1080p HD streamer was canceled, so if you want a device to stream 1080p from one side of the room to another side of the room (up to 33 feet away), Rocketfish has one today. But, no.


Here are a few reasons why you shouldn't spend $600 on this now. One, it's too early a technology to be sinking money into. Two, since it's early, the price will drop dramatically in the next year or two if you really want wireless HDMI. And three, we love wires, especially for situations like watching HD movies where you want to have as little interference to your picture as possible.

But if you really want it, here it is. [Best Buy via Dvice]



Gizmodo would probably receive higher ad revenue if it wasn't dismissive of products that it hasn't directly reviewed. The price and promised feature set are certainly fair game for commentary, but there's no need for the flat out "don't buy it" phrases.

There are many applications where a $600 price for this technology today is warranted.
